Grrrrrr Ex-Husbands...

Am I the only one with a complete pain in the butt ex-husband? Now I already know the answer to that one. My ex-*^%* noticed a sticker on the back of my car (the one in the pic) that has been there for about four years and is sure that I have a house in Spain. I have three things to say to this:

1) It is just a sticker (a house costs a tad more than a piece of plastic)
2) I wish
3) If I did, which I don't, surely after nearly 10 blissful years since divorcing him I should be able to expect my every move not to be queried and questioned.

He then asked the children when I last went to Spain (because they insisted that I didn't have this imaginary house) and when they said 'about two years ago' he said that he hadn't known that R & I had gone there. I wonder why he thinks I should ask his permission?

Last week he was questioning the children on my working hours. It's not as if he isn't with someone as last year he married his girlfriend from when we were married (hence me wanting a divorce). You would have thought that by now he wouldn't have the slightest interest in what I do.

GRRRRRRR - the words 'get', 'a' & 'life' spring to mind.

Sorry about that - I needed to let off steam and shall now get on with something far more interesting.

Good grief, the words obsessive and "mind your own" also spring to mind! Either that or tell him actually you do have a house in spain, bought with the profits from the book you wrote about pain in the ass ex-husbands!

Jen said...

Oh, good grief.

If it's any consolation, my ex objected to the fact that I'd decided to paint a room of my new house in a colour he hadn't approved! And he said I should have asked his permission before deciding to get a dog (18 months after we'd split up)!

Mental, the lot of 'em.

denise - I love your comment, so funny. How wonderful would it be to be published and successful buy that spanish house.

spiralskies - Blimey, he's not the same bloke is he? What a relief that they are exes too.

My ex was considerate enough to clear off to Lithuania! Result!

CL Taylor said...

Oooh talk about controlling - your ex-hubby AND Spiral's! What a bunch of ******s!

Karen said...

What is it with exes?? It would be so much easier never to have to clap eyes on them again, but when there are children involved it's not really possible. I think mine has finally lost interest in what I'm doing, but then it has been 14 years!!

Lane Mathias said...

Ggrrrrrrr indeed:-( Honestly what a flaming cheek, the nosey so and so.
Some people just can't let go can they.
Of course when you do have a house in Spain, bought from the proceeds of your huge advance, he'll be the first person you invite there ... won't he?:-)

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

helenmh - lucky you, I wish mine would do the same.

cal - you're not kidding.

karen - that give me a bit of hope - only 4 years to go then.

lane - oh of course, I shall write him an invitation right now in anticipation. Not.

andrea - you are very naughty and made me laugh.

Cheeky Devil!! He obviously has a problem letting go. He has no right to question you, Im surprised you kept your cool...if you did?

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

motherx - I had a rant, I have to admit but feel much better now that I've posted about it. I wasn't going to, but then thought what the hell.

elizabeth said...

My ex husband is a .... I was going to say something that started with "T" and sounds like swat.... but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

I hate that I waste any energy even bothering to loathe him.


You should play this up though. Seriously. Start speaking in spanish in front of him... it will drive him mad.

elizabeth said...

Oh, btw - can I come visit you in Spain? LOL {{{hugs}}}

Jenny Beattie said...

Hmmm, sorry to hear all that. I don't have an ex husband but from what I see there are excellent reasons to make them EX.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

elizabeth - of course you can come and visit me at my imaginary house, it has beautiful sea views. I think I should learn Spanish too.

I agree with you, its the fact that he manages to annoy me still that makes me so angry with myself. One day I shall learn to ignore him. Can't wait.

jj - Haha, so true.

andrea - sorry that I had to remove your comment. It was a little too true to be able to publish (next time I shall blog under pseudonym then I can put what I like).

Liane Spicer said...

OMG, don't get me started on the breed! The horrors I could relate! Suffice it to say that I'm no longer on speaking terms with my ex-husband. He lives a couple thousand miles away and I forget his existence completely most of the time.

Deborah Carr (Debs) said...

wordtryst - I can understand your feelings completely. I wish mine would move somewhere else too.

it’s a pleasure for me to write this testimony about this wonderful spell caster. his love spell literally changed my life! When I first contacted him in regards of getting my lover back, I was lost, sad, depressed and down… That’s certainly why I was a bit skeptical… But I was too curious and wanted to try his spells… To be frank, I must admit the results was fantastic and so fast! Thanks to for his wonderful work
